6D/5N Amazon Experience at Mamirauá Sustainable Development Reserve

AMAZON, Mamirauá

The Mamirauá Project is located 600 km (373mi.) west of Manaus in the State of Amazonas, the heart of the Amazon Rainforest. The Mamirauá Sustainable Development Reserve is the largest (1,124,000 ha) Brazilian protected area conserving flooded forest ecosystems, and the only operational area conserving the “várzea” flooded forest. This area is important not only because of its unique biodiversity and endemism, but also because it is the first Brazilian conservation unit designed to integrate the preservation of internationally significant biodiversity resources, fragile habitats, sustainable resource management and participatory management with traditional communities.
